  • For certain recipes it is recommended that only the Bottom Fixed Blades are used. The blender will still run with the Top Blades removed.
  • For tough ingredients like ice, solid fruits and vegetables, attach the Top Blades for additional blending power.
  • For softer ingredients and best puree results, make sure the Top Blades are removed and use only the Bottom Fixed Blades for blending.
  • For best chopping performance, use quick, controlled Pulses
  • The blender can be used with or without the top blades inserted - for softer ingredients and best puree results it is recommended to only use the bottom fixed blades
  • For tough ingredients such as ice, solid fruits and vegetables attach the top blades for additional blending power
  • If using the top blades, make sure to insert before adding ingredients to the blender
  • When producing heavy or hard loads, use Pulse to get the mixture started
  • Prepping your ingredients smaller will allow you to fit more into the pitcher
  • Do not use your blender to blend hot liquids
  • When grinding meat use Pulse and do not over process
  • For juices and smoothies, Pulse first and then turn the blender to High once the mixture is started
  • When mixing batters and dips, use the low or medium speed setting to reach the desired consistency and not over process
  • For splatter free blending begin on low and slowly increase to high
  • If food is sticking to the side of the pitcher, shut the unit off and use a rubber spatula to push the food down toward the blades
  • When pouring from pitcher use the pour spout - if the lid is removed make sure to remove the top blade before pouring because the blades are loose and will fall out
  • For best results clean immediately after use
  • If the blender is not turning on, check the alignment of the pitcher and make sure the lid is aligned and locked
  • To easily remove the pitcher lid, open the pour spout to release the pressure within the blender
  • If your smoothie is too thick, add juice, milk, or water to help thin it out

  • Use the Nutri Ninja® cups for personal smoothies and fruit juices, salad dressings, dips and sauces
  • When using the dough blade or discs, always set the variable speed dial to the dough/discs setting for optimal performance
  • For best handling of the discs, use the finger holes
  • When using the dough blade or chopping blade, make sure to attach the drizzle hole lid
  • The feed chute lid should be used when the discs are inserted into the bowl
  • If using the feed chute lid, make sure to use the two part pusher to move food through the chute
  • The smaller hole on the two part pusher is great for thinner items such as carrots
  • If making dough, add the dry ingredients into the bowl before adding the wet ingredients
  • The slicer/shredder disc is reversible - make sure the disc is inserted with the correct side up depending on the function you wish to perform
